Chapter 2 provides a literature review of various international development perspectives, while chapter 3 offers instructional suggestions for teaching about: (1) population; (2) food and hunger; (3) human rights and social justice; (4) conflict resolution; and (5) global interdependence and development processes. Chapter 4 provides information on specific international development organizations, and chapter 5 explains how to obtain financial support for international development education-related projects. Chapter 6 identifies current issues in this field, while chapter 7 presents case studies of related education projects. Annotated bibliographies and/or resource lists are included in most chapters.
